    Are you holding up OK Jon? I hope you feelings don't get hurt to bad on this board? Not all of us like to trash you.

    Oh, so now Jon suddenly cares about flooding in downtown Des Moines? We're supposed to believe he cares about anything other than the Hawks? Come on, he's not a credible source!

    LOL

    I appreciate your thinking that, but my feelings would be hurt if people didn't talk about the show ;)

    It's just folks expressing their opinions about a radio show. It's not like there are pitchforks and torches outside of my house.

    I don't know many of the folks on here. Those that I have gotten to know a little bit realize there is a person behind the mic, and the username.

    I care about what God thinks of me, and how I am living my one and only life. Outside of that, sticks and stones....

    The same web cam is on KCCI's website under their weather page. I work on CDS on Bell Avenue near Grays Lake and sandbagging is taking place as a precautionary measure.

    Speaking of that, did any of the I-State yard signs show up? I would like to think that you have been getting about one a week in your yard. If I did not live in Ames (and if I knew your whereabouts) I would have been personally sticking one in your yard every week (at about 3 am):yes:

    Last night I walked on both of those bridges, around 5:30. There was about 4 feet of grass between the water and the back steps to City Hall there....center screen, to the left (north in real life) of the Simon Estes Amphitheater. It appears to be down to about one foot now...last night, the street lights at simon estes that are along the back wall of the stage were about 4 feet from being submerged.

    It's just incredible.

    Is that live or are they just taking snapshots every so often? If its supposed to be live, my computer's not working.

    Gotchya. Does anyone know of one that is live? I like to see how fast the water is moving. Kind of a canoe/kayak buff. Not that there's going to be much of that going on this weekend like there was supposed to be.

    This isn't Nebraska and you aren't Frankenstein's Monster.


    Thanks for the link. My wife works with the DOT and I guess a bunch of the information they use is on servers that are being moved from ground floor because of the flooding. I can only imagine the damage that is being caused.

    Thanks for the heads up I was heading over to the station with my pitchfork this afternoon. I guess I don't have to stop at Lowe's to get a Torch.
